In response to BOL story about student getting supsended..

... for making a map of his school in CS. and some of the mistakes/misunderstanding in the podcast.

1... He wasn't just suspended, he was expelled and arrested for making "terroristic threats"

2... his house was searched by police and a hammer that he used to fix his bed was confiscated.

3... I have a link of his in game pictures. it looks fantastic, so I don't think he started to make game AFTER VT incident.

4... I think the reason he made a map base on his school, isn't to make any 'terroristic threats', but just like any gamer would do. That is... making a map of something you know best, place you most familiar with to play against your friends. In this case, his school.

I think it's just a case of HORRIBLE over-reacting. Now the poor kid couldn't graduate with his friends. the ""Let Freedom Ring for All People" banner is definitely nice and yet a bit ironic at the same time.
